Op-Ed: Steps To Reduce Impact Of Climate Change On New Mexico’s Forests And Surrounding Communities

For years, climate experts have been warning that our planet is undergoing changes that would make extreme weather events more common—and this past year, New Mexico saw those predictions come true. Extremely dry and windy weather in the spring and early summer created the perfect conditions for what proved to be the worst wildfire season in our state’s modern history. Then, a mere few weeks later, heavier than normal monsoon rains dropped nearly 20 inches of rain on parts of the state, flooding areas that had been scorched by the fires.

Cold start, breezy and milder afternoon

Cold temperatures are greeting us this morning once again, but we are starting to see some improving conditions from earlier this week. Stronger winds are keeping temps much warmer for the northern mountains with lows 10-15° above 0. Winds will gust 35-45 mph over eastern NM this afternoon. Even the ABQ metro will see some gusty conditions Saturday. It’ll help our temperatures quite a bit, even pushing eastern NM near 60° Albuquerque will reach 50° under sunny skies. So grab those sunglasses and keep them handy with this forecast because we’ll see a lot of sunshine the next week.

The weather this coming week threw us a curve with a strong winter storm focusing on Southern New Mexico.
